? >> absolutely. what i have been struck in the debate is the time, energy, and attention that has been spent on these tax policies, and the neglect of the broader challenges we face. this is the fantasy of bill and donald that the entire world is focused on capping deductions and what the ramifications are and this is how they spend their lives, so they are in their element, but lee side of the broader goals here. as maya saying, the first question i wanted to answer, does this all the problem? we have a medium-term problem which is the 10-year window, we're going to borrow $10 to it unless we change our policies. then we have what we feel is a primary threat to the future, the long-term problem. before we get to the detail of what the percentage should be, we need to make sure that whenever we negotiate solves those problems. it is essential that brevity -- that revenue be part of the equation. it is difficult to do the spending cuts alone. you need to touch the budget by 30% over the long term, and that will not be supported by the people of all long haul. we cannot just worry about the de
mornings to talk about the wind energy industry and the importance of the trucks tax credit. but before -- and the importance of the production tax credit. before i begin i'd like to associate myself with the majority leader's remarks. we do need to extend the tax cuts for the middle class as soon as possible. that's clearly the message the american people sent on november 6 in the nationwide election that we had. i also want to respond to the comments and the conversation between the two leaders over the debt ceiling limit. it's important to recognize that when we raise the debt ceiling all we are doing is keeping faith with what congress has already appropriated, what congress has already made clear we will spend on behalf of our country and all the various ways that the federal government operates. we cannot afford to have a situation like we had august before last where we dallied and we literally shot our economy and ourselves in the foot by not extending the debt ceiling. we saw one of the rating agencies lower our national rating; first time in history. there is a way to do this
. beyond the obvious of highways, support and airport we ought to be think about a energy infrastructure in this country and whether it serves our economy well. we have already seen some thoughtful suggestions from both sides of the aisle to take a look at that. but i was a when it comes to spending in the future, we need to be thoughtful about ways to fund infrastructure. i guess many of you saw mayor rahm emanuel's article result in the "washington post" on the same subject. secondly, in the area of education i wouldn't be here today without good education and opportunity created by the national defense education act. i want to give belated thanks to the soviets for launching sputnik and scaring the hell out of the u.s. economist because as result of it they created a loan program that got me into college law school. we can't give up on that. this kid from east st. louis illinois and for many others, these loans make a big difference whether it's pell grants or loans, but let's look at this honestly. 25% of the federal aid to education goes to for-profit schools. they have 12% of the s
energy. the first water enhancer to hit store shelves rang up $100 million in its first year of sales. add it to water and you have what is called a customized drink, so popular, so fast, it already gave rise to at least four generic brands. but it has also given rise to this. a scene repeated in dozens of clips on youtube. many with kids so young we can't show their faces. doing the same thing these adults are, throwing back from the bottle, or from shot glasses. swallowing much more than the half teaspoon serving size. >> this has major kid appeal. it's colorful. they're kid-friendly flavors. >> reporter: to take a look at this popular product, we asked a nutritionist -- >> i tell parents to be very careful. >> reporter: a pediatrician. >> we're concerned about repetitive use. >> reporter: and a toxicologist to help us understand what is in here. after we first took 14 samples of five brands here to the lab at stat analysis. specifically looking at caffeine levels in the energy versions, and at the chemical propylene glycol, a major ingredient that has a wide range commonly used in
and we'd have world peace. it would be great. but it's a waste of time and energy. because we know it's not going to happen. the thing that would be more courageous would be to talk about whether the issues regarding mental health. what should an employer or a teammate do to say i'm worried about him. i think we should do something. we saw this last spring in colorado. 470 murders in chicago this year alone. where was costas on the n.f.l. and talk about that? >> greg: whenever you find gun control you find higher gun crime. when you say they would be -- >> dana: when you say they would be alive if they didn't have a gun, could you say that to the guy by the nanny wielding the knife and tried to kill herself? the same problem. it's a mental health problem and violence problem. it's not the fault of the knife or the gun. >> bob: talk about the violence for a second. clearly, here on -- >> greg: don't worry, i am not going to shoot you. >> bob: you are. >> kimberly: verbally. >> bob: the average life expectancy of n.f.l. player is 53 and 59. average age of white male is 79. 75 to 79. the
and energy and education. the things that are still on the agenda that are crucial to moving this country forward. you know, as important as the debt bill is, it still isn't going to create jobs in the short term. you've got to do energy. we've got to do infrastructure. we've certainly got to do immigration. we owe that to the american people and to those children. there's so many things that we've got to do that if we can do this successfully and get it done and see the economy take off and an investment come into this country, then we go after the other four challenges and if we can do all those, he'll be an incredibly successful president and i think congress' approval rating will begin to rise again. >> joan, it still seems that some of the tea party types, including senator demint still thinks it was the messaging, not the substance that was wrong why they lost the election. listen to what senator demint said. >> and republicans were not doing a good job of convincing americans that we care about every one of them and that our policies are going to make them better. i'm a conservativ
, the energy, the passion for the philosophy of the republican party that engenders a powerful leadership response to a direct challenge to the fundamental values and tenants of the republican party, and i ask you, if you don't respond now, when would the republican party respond? >> i'll let you in on a secret, lou, because i like you. between us, and us only -- lou: is this where you start to tell me to go to hell? >> no, sir, i would never, never tell you that. we had a plan that many conservatives in the house worked on, and we were going to unvail it last week. we were going to unvail it only the exact same day that speaker boehner unvailed his response so we canned it, but there is a group of conservatives led by jim jordan, extraordinary person from ohio, and others. we do have a plan, and it's earlly like cup, cat, and balance, which i hasten to add would have averted the so-called super committee, and what we are talking about today, and it had bipartisan support. if we get the house leadership to reinvest and cut cap and balance, our plan last summer, but something about washing
